Thames Town in Songjiang County, China: A Photographic and Philosophical Critique

This paper is part of a larger book in progress, THE 2ND COMING OF CAPITAL IN CHINA, which is a sequel to my ECONOMY, EMOTION, AND ETHICS IN CHINESE CINEMA: GLOBALIZATION ON SPEED (Routledge, 2016). THE 2ND COMING OF CAPITAL is designed as a photographic and philosophical critique of capital as the dominant global culture. My presentation will use photos shot in China to show how suburbanization and heritage industry develop side by side and how this affects people’s experience of space/time.
